Last night 8/11/18 we had micro burst winds and dry lightning which blew a live pine tree down that hit the high voltage power lines and started the tree on fire.
The membership responded in a large way, the Mini pumper and brush truck were taken to the site. The fire was extinguished quickly and the surrounding area was inspected for hot spots while we waited for Bridger Valley Elec..
Thank you all who responded!
It has been decided to ban campfires until conditions improve. Thank You in advance for your cooperation.
Curretly we have 3 brush trucks which have a capacity of 750 gallons of water. Response time from from Evanston is about 1 hour.
